THREE Pershore Phoenix paddlers are out in Thailand with Great Britain this week.

Club chairman Pauline Young, David Blackmore and Michael Dacombe are competing at the IDBF World Dragon Boat Racing Championships in Pattaya-Rayong.

The trio trained hard in the winter and got through trials.

Other Pershore members are training for the next national league race at Wath upon Dearne, West Yorkshire, at the start of September.
